We talk about movies and TV, so why not have a discussion about the books we read!  Let us know what's the last book you read, and feel free to recommend it or expand on what it's about.

I mostly read through my Kindle and get most of my eBooks through Amazon.

The book I recently finished was Inside the Real Area 51: The Secret History of Wright Patterson.

Ah yes, I remember Flight of the Old Dog from many many moons ago. Seems like I read that 20+ years ago, is it really that old?

Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series.   Great books, innovative magic system in it.

on Jun 28, 2014

I'm rereading the Wheel of Time series, except that I'm finally getting to read all 14 books for the first time.  It's been a good time so far!

Am currently just over 300 pages into Path of Daggers, and am pleasantly surprised by the pacing.  I remembered books 7-10 being a slog, but aside from a couple chapters, CoS wasn't bad at all, and thus far, PoD has moved along just fine as well.  Perhaps it's more WH and CoT that move along so slowly.  Either way, I'm enjoying the journey in the meantime.

Agreed.  I found the pacing to be very uneven (it seems to be a Sanderson trademark in my experience), but it's an excellent series with an amazing storyline.

Since we are on the subject of books and reading, I am reading, The Case for Books by Robert Darnton, the celebrated historian. He writes about the future of the printed book in this digital age and is a good read.

Can you get that on kindle? Joking! Kind of.

 

edit: the answer is yes, and it is now on my wish list.
